This extension is not maintained anymore and is not functional. It's here only for documentation and archival purposes.

It has been obsoleted by the Realtime Collaborative Plain WikiText Editor and Visual Realtime Collaborative Editor. Please refer to them for installing realtime wiki editors.

Adds a new document editing mode, similar to wiki edit but which converts the editor into an EtherPad like collaborative editing tool.

The extension has been initially developed in the context of the Wiki3.0 project, funded by the Direction générale de la compétitivité, de l'industrie et des services (DGCIS) and labelled by the Groupe Thematique Logiciel Libre of the regional cluster System@tic - Paris Region

Its initial contributors are the INRIA/LORIA SCORE Team, Bogdan Flueras and XWiki SAS.

This extension is experimental, it won't trash your database but it still has a few rough edges to work out.


After you install the extension, a new editor will appear in the menu for advanced users.

When you select the realtime editor, you will be able to collaborate on a wiki page with other users in real time.
